 It all begins at ground level - Professor Nicola West

In this video, recorded at the BSRD conference in November 2015, Professor Nicola West provides an insight into the importance of plaque control and its effect on periodontitis and gingivitis. The challenges of achieving effective plaque control and the tips on effective mechanical cleaning. She provides an overview of the role of chemotherapeutic agents.

Aims and objectives:

  • The effect of oral hygiene and plaque control on periodontitis, gingivitis and peri-implantitis
  • The rationale for the role of plaque in periodontal and peri-implant disease and the effectiveness of challenges
  • The importance of mechanical cleaning including what type of brushes work best, what bristle pattern, what frequency and how
  • Role of chemotherapeutic agents

Planning through the ages - Dr. Paul King

In this, the very last lecture by Dr. Paul King, recorded at the BSRD conference in November 2015, he gives an overview, through history, of how dental treatments, dental materials and dental options have improved over the years.

  • Gain a better understanding of the various advantages and disadvantages associated with the treatment options available
  • A greater appreciation of the clinical knowledge and skills required to successfully treatment plan and restore compromised and complex worn dentitions
  • Some great options on the management of tooth wear
  • Challenges of interocclusal space recreation
  • Technical challenges of conventional fixed restorations
  • Challenges of tooth maintenance with conventional fixed restorations
  • Advantages and disadvantages of conventional fixed restorations
  • Challenges of removable prosthodontics
  • Abutment tooth maintenance in removable prosthodontics
  • Risk factors association with conventional fixed restorations
  • Development of adhesive dentistry and restorations
  • Minimal preparation adhesive restorations – palatal metal alloy veneers and palatal indirect ceramic veneers
  • Resin for labial incisal and palatal lesions
  • Minimal prep adhesive restorations – complex anterior tooth lesions
  • Minimal prep adhesive restorations – failure, repair, maintenance
  • Minimal prep adhesive restorations – posterior and generalised tooth wear
  • Evolution of the last 40 years of the worn dentition treatment

Grand designs. Restoring the edentulous ridge - Professor Tara Aghaloo

In this lecture, recorded at the BSRD conference in November 2015, Professor Tara Aghaloo provides an overview of the edentulous ridge and various factors to consider when developing these for patient rehabilitation. Professor Aghaloo looks at what options can be provided to make it suitable for implant based rehabilitation. She provides information on grafting materials, tilted implants, procedures to avoid sinus lifting, immediate vs non immediate loading and various other aspects for the edentulous ridge development.

Aims and objectives:

  • The various factors to considering in developing the edentulous ridge
  • The important factors to consider during assessment for implants
  • The criteria to consider for fixed and removable prosthesis design
  • When to graft and when to use alternative solutions
  • Survival rates of various types of grafting materials
  • Survival rates of tilted implants
  • Procedures to avoid sinus lifts – zygomatic and pterygoid implants
  • Immediate placement vs immediate loading in the edentulous patient
  • Examples of cases for the edentulous patient

Back to the firm foundations with site development - Professor Tara Aghaloo

In this lecture, recorded at the BSRD conference in November 2015, Professor Tara Aghaloo provides a great insight into the site development for implant placement. Providing an insight into various options for developing soft, and hard tissue, after extractions, during implant placements and also looks at the role of PDGF. She provides an overview of the future of bone and soft tissue regeneration.

Aims and objectives:

  • Site development for implant placement
  • Bone augmentation procedures
  • Do socket augmentation procedures serve a benefit after extraction
  • How do we improve soft tissue contours after extraction
  • Future of bone and soft tissue regeneration
  • Tissue engineering, the role of BMP in local alveolar and sinus augmentation procedures
  • Role of PDGF

Restoration, not demolition - Dr. James Baker

In this lecture, recorded at the BSRD conference in November 2015, Dr. James Baker looks at the evolving role of composite resin in restorative dentistry. He provides an excellent overview of the uses of composite resin restorations (direct and indirect), with a thought on the limitation of this material. Providing tips on shade matching, rubber dam and isolation, matrices, and finishing and polishing. Such tips can lead to great success in the practitioners daily composite resin work.

Aims and objectives:

  • Gain an overview of what you can achieve with composite restorations and how it can solve multiple situations
  • An overview of the limitations of composites
  • The items you need to achieve composite success
  • Tips on planning including making the stent
  • Tips on shade making
  • Tips on rubber dam and isolation
